I think they are "Smelling Salts" small glass ammonia capsules. You are supposed to crush the glass capsules releasing the strong ammonia scent and then place it under an unconscious persons nose to revive him. If you do a Google or Yahoo search you should find more information and photos.

I think I have found the answer and the helpful clues lie within the vehicle first aid kits. They list ammonia inhalants 9102500. Several of the contractors use Burroughs Wellcome & Co. P-K V1.

This is the correct originals in some kits

I looked through my medical kits and came up with 6 different boxes. None have the stock number on them.

But then I checked out my 24 unit Elizabeth Arden kit that is new in the original box. And look what turned up!

I have a box, made by A.E. Halperin, that contains 4 ampules to be taken orally. It doesn't have a stock number and doesn't list the contents as 4. See photos.
